Hi Keerthi.
Firstly most of the cos dont ask for such questions but there are also cos which might ask then you should be ready to give an answer which you can back up in case there are any supplementary questions relating to your answer. But in all the cases its best to give a true answer so that you might not get trapped in any the subsequent questions that might follow after your answer.

Hi Keerthi,
Don't worry about such questions. They often get to be asked in case the employer is seeking a reason to deny the offer. Try to focus on the more critical aspects-like your academic profile, skills etc. Employers look at candidates' skills, interview performance-relating to career, academics. If you do well here, they won't focus on such HR aspects. Why should they anyway?
Which specialization have you chosen for MBA? There are only few specializations that draw behavior similar to IT-no latency, no gaps in academics etc.
You can as well chalk out some activities like a financial review research of a certain market, for instance; to convey your interest in the career and the company. You may be working on this now, but there's nothing wrong in extending it to the past! Same thing can be done to any work/projects that you are currently engaged with. Don't associate any firm/place for such projects, as the expectation would be to present letters from them. Instead, let them know that all these were done at home, may be under guidance of a Professor, for instance.

All the best in your job search.
